For dating photographs of floating restaurants in Aberdeen in the 1950s

China Mail 27 June 1958

The finishing touches are being made to the Sea Palace, a new floating restaurant at Aberdeen. The exterior design has been taken from the famous Marble Boat in the Summer Palace in Peking.

The completion of the Sea Palace will bring the number of floating restaurants to three. The others are the Yu Lai Tai which is about 6 years old (1952?) and the Tai Pak which has been in Aberdeen for 4 years (1954?)

Hi David,

The marker above showed the existing location of Tai Pak.  But for the one shown in the photos they are of a previous version.  The original location should be somewhere closer to the present day Ap Lei Chau Promenade\Wind Power Park, west of the bridges.

That was before all the reclaimation on both sides of the harbour.

Thanks T, I've added a note above.
